individual cardinal in reverse order from oldest to youngest will come put their hand on the bible and again swear secrecy of the conclave? >> right. it's not merely secrecy. this is a process in which they are voting before god in their own conscience to do what they believe to be the right thing for the church, rather than being subjected to any kind of external influence. all of this, chris, obviously, the choreography, setting before michelangelo's fresco of the last judgment, swearing of thoet as a group and individually all intented to drive home to cardinal electors this isn't just a political game they're about to participate in. but this is a fateful choice that they are making before god. >> if you can, either of you, i don't know how good your latin is, when they have tight shots on the book, if you can see the latin, wonder what it reads? >> also interesting to see what gospel. having read what that is, do we know what gospel they're swear tag oath on? >> it's the book of the new testament. which page they have it open to, i'm not entirely sure. >> what's on the left, chris, actu
waiting to see the identity of the new pope. you were mentioning earlier that the cardinals conclave -- it has ended much quicker than we thought. >> this is extraordinary. the amount of time that it took -- it is the same amount of time approximately that it took to elect the previous pope. it's not extraordinarily fast. it only surprise many of us because there was no favorite. therefore, there was a great deal of speculation about the cardinals being divided and therefore taking a long time, having to choose a compromise candidate. now it would appear that because of the time span, they did not choose a compromise candidate. my analysis would be that they decided fairly early on somebody who had a simple majority. in the papal election, benedict xvi revised that to make sure the new pope had very widespread support throughout the world. he reintroduced the old condition that the pope has to achieve at least a 2/3 majority. in this case, 78 votes is a minimum out of 112. that is 2/3, plus one. because 112 is not divisible by 3. it would be extraordinary if the pope had only achieve

cardinals, the day started like a pep rally, cheered on by students heading for the priesthood, they left the college where they had been staying for the secret world of the conclave. cardinal anglo sodano, dean of the college of cardinals, used his homily to deliver an appeal for unity and not so thinly veiled reference to increasingly public differences among the princes of the church. a cardinal who took part in the last conclave said taking the oath of secrecy in front of michaelangelo's fresco of the last judgment was "almost overwhelming." the practice of only cardinals electing a pope began in 1056. >> extra ominous. exit everyone. >> reporter: locking them in came 200 years later to help speed up the process. but there is no campaigning inside the sistine chapel according to respected author father thomas reese. >> all the discussion, all the debate, that happens outside the chapel. in the chapel it's an atmosphere of prayer, it's a silence except when they're counting the votes. >> reporter: the first full day of voting begins tomorrow. ballots will be burned twice a d

cardinals in rome got so much traffic, if you will, as possible candidates, is because they are learning a lesson. need to learn these things have to be faced squarely. the cardinals talk about issuees a enpersons before the conclave began. they take a vow of secrecy. they are not supposed to vow what was discussed in the meetings. yet the american cardinals, those meetings began, american cardinals scheduled a daily press briefing. because they wanted to -- couldn't give details but wanted to keep channels of communication open. it is interesting that after the first day those were cancelled. cardinals said, that's a little too much. i think that shows us is that american cardinals have learned and are learning and these issues that are real issues, issues that people care about deeply. we can't pretend they don't exist. some of the leadership, even if one wasn't elected pope, will help communicate what they learned in the states to cardinals and bishops from other parts of the world. we can really move forward and continue the healing process which has begun with you but i think we sti

this morning celebrated by many of the cardinals who, of course, elected him to the papacy and also many of the over 80 cardinals who did not take place in the conclave but who are also here today to profess their loyalty and support for the new pope. >> john, is this ceremony typical for most of the ceremonies like that? is there anything different here? >> well, there are a couple of touches that are basically designed to sort of keep things moving so it doesn't take too long. for one thing, some of the traditional prayers in latin have been truncated, shortened and the pope has expressed a desire for some of them to be delivered in greek to describe the universe salt of the church. there are other small elements of the mass that have been eliminated in order to make sure that it's not too sprawling. in general, what we're going to be seeing today is the normal mass, the normal liturgy. the distinctive elements of the inaugural mass come at the beginning, which is the imposition of the pallium, the imposition of the fisherman's ring symbolizing the authority of his office. the pallium
rose. indicating there was no consensus yet. just hours before, those 115 voting cardinals entered today's final mass, perhaps sneaking in some last conversations before heading to the conclave. some such as boston's cardinal sean o'malley took the time to sit alone in prayer. one by one, the cardinals walked down the aisle before taking individual oaths to obey the rules of the conclave, which demand the utmost secrecy. if they ever break their silence, they risk excommunication. cardinal dolan, now thought to be a considerable contender, gave a final radio dispatch from rome before heading into conclave himself. >> it's a unique, special morning. i never thought i'd be doing what i'm about to do. >> reporter: the last words we'll hear from him for a while. >> extra omenes. >> reporter: everyone out, and with that, the doors closed, the work of choosing a pope would truly begin. >> there's a sanctity in the air that they're trying to see who does it belong to, among these 115 cardinals? who is the person who is holy? and that's the toughest judgement of all. and when the world see
ended but the suspense has not. >> the cardinals are she'll smiling in the vatican. when they come out, we'll share that joy. you can hear the sirens and cars. rome is going to go crazy. >> shepard: one thing i've learned in my limited time in covering the inauguration of pope sirens are ubiquitous. it's possible it's out of celebration but they're always here morning noon and night. i love rome but those noises are beyond annoying. >> i lived here four years in the '90s and you have to get used to that. >> shepard: to look out and see so many flags from europe and around the world, it's not as if the city was teeming with tourists. it's my understanding people have streamed in to witness this moment. >> that's right. it's very natural at this time because we have preparatory meetings so people were ready. i've met people here just making a regular pilgrimage and students just here by coincidence but everybody's in the square now. >> shepard: the biggest difference between this time and the last time is th

[laughter] who are we kidding? they are going to pick one of the cardinals who who do you have? >> cardinal scola of milan an italian front runner and cardinal tagly of the philippines. at 55 he is one of youngest on the list. he looked a bit like a boy scout as he helped an elderly cardinal go in. >> jon:. >> jon: what could be more wholesome than that? any other candidate? >> cardinal from argentina saying the church needs needs ta better job reaching out to women. >> jon: want to reach out to women? maybe consider one of them for pope? oh, too much? how about for cardinal? no bishop?

with cardinal dolan has been interesting in that dolan was the individual who led the battle against the obama administration's mandate that employers provide insurance coverage to all employees. the health coverage, contraception coverage, i should say. >> it remind me of way back in the '60s when it looks like john f. kennedy might be the new president and there were questions if he would be elected to pope because john f. kennedy was a catholic. so would the pope be running the united states. but as you pointed out, tamron, the president made it clear that he has at sometimes gone head to head with some of the bishops and cardinals in the american catholic church. they have not always seen eye to eye. i think he add good laugh about that one, tamron. >> tell me about the mood. we know around this time yesterday we saw first black smoke as expected with the first round of voting. at this point, who can predict so clearly what we will see and in maybe about 15 minute from now, chris. >> we don't know but it would seem based on the timing so far that they are in their fifth ballot. ed with one
argentina's cardinal jorge mario bergoglio now pope francis stepped through the red curtains on a vatican balcony to deliver his first blessing. >> translator: let us pray for the whole world because let us have a big brotherhood. i wish that this journey for the church that we are going to start today and my cardinals want to help me, let's hope this journey bears fruits for the evangelizing of this beautiful city. >> word first came of a new pope in the form of the white smoke rising from the chimney of the sistine chapel. that signal that the 115 cardinals have elected one of their own. that set the bells ringing out across st. peter's square. there are thousands and thousands of people still rushing to celebrate even as we speak. let's go to the scene. our own chris cuomo has been watching all of this history unfold in very dramatic terms. this is one of those historic moments that all of us will always remember. >> reporter: it's a great memory to cover. there is no question, wolf. but the context here is so meaningful. starting with pope benedict's resignation, there was something v
. signaling to the world that the cardinals failed to elect a pope. >> it was only their first try. the cardinals are getting an early start today and the world will be watching. we will have the latest on the conclave in a moment. first a look at the other stories we are following this half-hour -- >> president obama's charm offensive continues with a reach across the aisle. he is about to meet with republicans to try to hammer out a deal on the budget. in an exclusive interview he revealed to abc news just how he plans to get that done. >> he really is charming. >> he is trying. >> his strut has changed in the second -- he is like, what, i am the man. >> he has a lot on his plate to get done. let's hope. >> his charm offensive. i like that. i like the fact that he is bringing it out. we knew he had it. and a little too stiff for me. the first time around. >> charm the easy part. governance the hard part. let's get something done, mr. president. >> let's not even get into that part. >> huge discovery for mars "rover." scientists say the planet could have supported life. we'll tell
the chimney that will reveal the results of the first round of voting. earlier the 115 cardinals swore an oath of secrecy. officials then declared everyone out before the chapel was sealed and the cardinals entered seclusion. there are already two factions forming that many describe as the reformers versus the romans. either way, the next pope will face daunting scandals. a new poll shows 78% of people disapprove of how the church handled the child sex abuse crisis. kris jansing is live for us in rome. obviously that is not the only scandal the church is facing but they're seeing declining number in young people interested in the church. right now all eyes realistically are on that chimney. can you set the stage, at least the atmosphere there on the day of the first vote? >> reporter: i would say it is electric on. a very cold night where it is very rainy if you look down on st. peter's square, the crowds have been growing over the last hour in spite of the fact that international media seems to be convince that had the smoke would be black. that it would be very hard to imagine them going in
's almost time. in just a few hours, cardinals will begin the ancient ritual of choosing the next pope. you can actually feel the tension, the anxiety, and the excitement. the bells are tolling, it so must be the top of the hour. today, it begins. now, this morning, already, all the cardinals, even those over 80 who won't vote, gathered together inside st. peter's basilica for a mass. they prayed for divine help, for inspiration, and for guidance to choose a successor to pope benedict xvi. next hour the cardinals will swear an oath before filing into the sistine chapel, and then late today, those cardinals will vote for the first time. but donate expect to see white smoke coming from the chimney today. it's almost like a test vote. hard to say if there's a front-runner. betting money is no. but there are at least two cardinals getting a lot of buzz. angelo scola, an italian, who was close to pope benedict, and an american, cardinal sean o'malley of boston, he's getting a lot of support from latin america cardinals, who think their part of the world has been largely ignored by rome. who else
